As a guitarist, Greg’s compositional forms follow from the strengths of the guitar, not just in the works for this instrument but also translating them to others. Arpeggio patterns and runs are echoed in the solo Alto flute piece Tre Correnti for example. Greg works in the domain of fully notated through composed composition. His works share a fluidity of colour and tone that allows the performer to interoperate, challenge and respond to the written material.
